Some Cold Hard Facts

Posted: Updated:

An Arctic front is coming! It's nothing out of the ordinary, especially as we are looking ahead to the start of Meteorological Winter in a few short weeks. These types of fronts can bring cold blasts and snow to the Bluegrass. We'll get one of those impacts tonight - plunging temperatures.

We are tracking the front to across the Bluegrass the evening and continue on into eastern Kentucky tonight. You likely won't notice much across our skies, but the cold you will. We are tracking lows in the mid to upper 20s tonight. Along with being the coldest night since St. Patrick's Day, Lexington has the potential to mark the first hard freeze of the fall. Our first frost and freeze occurred within a few days of each other last month.

We won't really shake the chill on Friday. But there will be a good deal sunshine. So think of it as a bright winter day. We'll spend most of the day in the 30s. To put these readings in perspective, January's average high in Lexington is in the lower 40s. It will be another cold night into the start of the weekend. It bears reminding, remember to protect your plants, pipes, and pets over the next 36 hours from the cold.

If you're not ready for old man winter just yet, don't worry. This brush with the tundra won't last for long. We are tracking milder but still cool for November days through late next week.
